ABOUT

I am looking for a band that plays local gigs. I have been a member of various different bands over the past 10 years. I am a classically trained violinist turned fiddle player. I played in a band called The Gin Palace Jesters (I recorded on their Roadhouse Riot album, which can be founf on Spotify) in Chicago Illinois for about 3 years. Since I've been in Reno, I have gigged with Dusty Miles and the Cryin Shame (recorded on the album Into Darkness), Leroy Virgil and the Loaded Dice, and Thom Crowder & Friends. I am good at picking up melodies by ear, and have played various different styles, including classic country, folk, bluegrass, swing, and rockabilly (though I would not limit myself to solely those genres.) I enjoy playing melodic, singer-songwriter style.
